May 2011 – Cancer & Survival

Father, sister, friends;
those I have not lost give me
everlasting hope

I saw a t-shirt
that said “better flat than dead”
rightest thing ever

never lose faith that
things will get better and you
can eat more bacon
continuing her run of blending
Bacon with all other topics

reasons to survive
as for me, they numbered five
now another two

Leukemia creeps
Woolly Mammoth white blood cells
Lymph nodes in sheep’s clothes
~Bruce M.

White blood cells gather
Lymphatic snowflakes take hold
Liver and spleen freeze
~Bruce M.

I don’t know what’s worse
Is it the illness or curse
Let’s just find a cure
